Instagram photos of Laura Geller's Gilded Honey ($26) have never failed to amaze me, so I finally caved in and got one for myself as well. I've used it for about a week now, so today I wanted to share my thoughts on this product, show you how it looks on my face, and compare it with some of my favorite highlighters.

As many people have noted, I was a bit disappointed by the size of this thing. Just so that you can get an idea of how small this is. I've compared it to Clinique's Cheek Pop and theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer. It is only slightly larger than Clinique's Cheek Pop, and Mary-Lou is just huge compared to Laura Geller's Gilded Honey.

My top 4 favorite highlighters have been Dior Glowing Pink Illuminator, theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer, Wet n Wild Precious Petals (can I PLEASE find this in the store because I need a backup!), and BECCA Champagne Pop (I could not find it anywhere in my drawers so I wasn't able to include that one in this blogpost, but click here to check out this blogpost on Champange Pop to see how it swatches).

Personally I find it really hard to capture the beauty of highlighters on camera and have the most difficult time reviewing those, but here's my attempt at swatching these four highlighters. They may look a bit powdery, but trust me when I say they are not. Obviously, none of these are dupes and I wasn't even trying to find dupes, but Laura Geller's Gilded Honey is much warmer and more golden than the rest. Compared to Champagne Pop, I would said Gilded Honey is more golden and less peachy. Gilded Honey doesn't look too metallic on my yellow-based skin tone and if I lightly dust it on my face, it actually looks quite natural. I can see this one looking amazing on people who are more tanned than I am though, as it will make your skin GLOW!

In this photo I did a heavy layer of this on my cheekbones and brought it up towards my brow bone, but this photo doesn't do this highlighter any justice whatsoever. I really like how it doesn't emphasize my pores, and it was long-lasting and still visible by the end of the day. It isn't as intense as Champagne Pop and Precious Petals, but you can build up the intensity if you want.

Now that I have Gilded Honey, I want Laura Geller's Peach Glow as well! #byebyemoney.
